Overview

In the eyes of society, ladies are born, not made…

Eloise Hamilton, the illegitimate daughter of a wealthy banker, knows society’s hallowed doors are closed to the likes of her. She attends her first country ball with no expectations, not even when Lord Richard Craven, heir to a dukedom, singles her out.

Harry Benson-Smythe is shocked to return from a long absence to find that the sight of Craven sniffing around an all-grown-up Eloise incites a disconcerting level of jealousy. All for a girl he once thought of as a little sister—now a woman his father will never allow him to take to wife.

But there are other ways to be together, as in joining forces to investigate the disappearance of several local girls. Yet when Harry catches Craven kissing Eloise, he decides he will damn well be the one to show her how it’s done—properly.

Craven will not let Eloise’s rejections and Harry’s insults go lightly by. He had plans for Eloise’s virginal body—even if life as they all know it ends in a hellfire of bullets.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Eloise Hamilton, the illegitimate daughter of a wealthy banker, knows her place among the ton. Thinking that neighbor Harry Benson-Smythe could never stoop low enough to marry her, Eloise freely develops a steamy friendship with him. They team up to solve the disappearance of several local girls, drawing out the abductor as they discover that sometimes stories do have a happy ending. VERDICT Set in Surrey in 1820, this tale that is part mystery and part romance explores the battle between what is right and what is duty in a society entrenched in rules and confinements. Forgotten Heiress celebrates women who refuse to conform and the men who find this defiance unforgettable. [Xpress Reviews, 2/22/13.]—Judy Taylor Garner, Strayer Univ., Glen Allen, VA
From the Publisher
“A historical love story with a pinch of suspense, Forgotten Heiress celebrates women who refuse to conform and the men who find this defiance unforgettable.”
—Library Journal

“What a delicious title for an historical romance! Titillates our twenty first century minds and then firmly plants us back in 1809.”
—My Earnest Reviews on A Scandalous Proposition

“I recommend Compromising the Marquess to fans of historical romances wrapped in suspense.”
—Caffeinated Book Reviewer

    I really enjoyed this tale of a beautiful, free spirited, feisty

    I really enjoyed this tale of a beautiful, free spirited, feisty and loving hellion named Eloise. Harry is her neighbor and rescuer. Eloise is illegitimate but loved by her father and that puts her in a bad light with her half-sister. Eloise knows she will have no season, marriage or children and will live with her dad. Eloise loves deeply and her father, Harry, Molly (her horse), Jacob (her dog) and new addition Patch are her world. Harry must marry to raise his family higher into the ton. Evil is around Eloise and only Harry can save her. This story has one element that I don't think I have read in any other book. Harry's dad, Sir Henry, actually is a great dad. He is compassionate and loving to all of his family and even Eloise. I would of like some more steamy and hot scenes but I really liked this book. I give it 3 fingers up and 7 toes.
